    I just bought a little portable powder coating gun from here http://www.eastwoodco.com/jump.jsp?itemID=17540&itemType=PRODUCT. I also got a little toaster oven to cure the powder coat. Pretty fun, just need to prep the item well.


    My first attempt at powder coating with a satin black powder.

    Here is the gun, minus the powder cup.
